Today we are going to practice spelling two syllable words with adjacent consonants.
Split each of these words into syllables and segment the word one syllable at a time. So when segmenting desk/top, establish that there are two parts to this word, desk and top. Segment desk first, d-e-s-k, then add top, t-o-p. I usually model this repeatedly for the group until they all have the ability to do it for themselves. Now try spelling these words; sandpit, windmill, lunchbox. How did you get on?
You might like a go at playing Space Race now which is a spelling game from Phonics play.
Finish your session by reading through these sentences.

This frog is chomping on pondweed.
